Each week in this space, we feature a senior cat in need of adoption or sponsorship. Please remember all the older cats in shelters. They make great companions, and unlike kittens, they (probably) won’t climb the curtains! Adopt a senior cat, and help him or her enjoy the best years of their life.
Today, we’re introducing two great cats: Shadow and Tiger. No, you’re not seeing double. Shadow and Tiger are two orange tabbies who look almost exactly alike, though you’ll learn to tell them apart once you’ve spent some time with them. These girls are both 8 years old. They entered the shelter when their person could not care for them anymore.
These ladies spent most of their lives in one home, so they’re finding the shelter environment a little stressful, and they’re hoping to find a new home together soon. They enjoy being petted and, once they’ve gotten used to you a little bit, they will eat up the attention you give them.
Shadow and Tiger are currently at the Humane Rescue Alliance’s Oglethorpe Street adoption center. Stop by and meet them, or learn more about them here and here.
